Back when I started with world wide web things I created my own links page. For my own use, so I had my web links available on all my computers. With the rise of 'search engine optimization' I started to receive requests to add certain links. First as bulk 'link exchange' mails but later as automated "personal" requests which have their own special rant. The "personal" requests sometimes used interesting backstories such as a school project where the children had found such a good resource together and the teacher hoped to bring a smile to the childrens' faces by having the suggestion from the schoolchildren actually implemented. So I added a line at the beginning of the page:If you want to mail me to notify me about your very special link that really needs to be here to help children all over the world, enable world peace, would be the best resource ever or simply increase your pagerank: Don't. These are my links.and this seems to help. For now.
